Foodie Friday: Strawberry Shortcake
This delectably rich Strawberry Shortcake, loaded with strawberries and topped with creamy whipped topping, can be found at Disney’s Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. This is yummy deliciousness served in a cold metal bowl. It’s been one of my favorite desserts since I was a child.
They sing the “Strawberry Shortcake” song to let you know it’s comin’, and they’ll keep bringin’ ya more until you’re done! Not making a trip anytime soon? No worries, here’s the recipe. Enjoy!
